ABOUT NAMA ROCOCO
Founded by artist Karen Combs, Nama Rococo makes luxurious hand painted and hand printed large format wallpapers sold by the individual sheet. All Nama Rococo papers are based on Karen’s own artwork and designs.
Karen is big fan of the Old World and its sensuousness. Influenced by the crafts guilds and workshops of 18th century Europe and Japan (as well as art throughout history) her tastes run from Qing Dynasty landscape paintings to pop art graphics to Funkadelic album covers.
These designs take flowing, lively shapes and knock them curiously off kilter. Craftsmanship plays a big role as does resonating coloration. It is another form of romance, a love affair. Superior quality is a must. Nama Rococo is made with a beautiful archival paper and hand-mixed artist’s pigments and mediums. Individual sheets work as Art pieces framed on a wall, or many of the same sheets together covering a whole room. It’s almost unfair to call it “wallpaper”. The term doesn’t really express the exuberant display of imagination or the unique materials and special format of Nama Rococo papers.
